Goodstart opens state-of-the-art early learning centre at ANU
Goodstart Early Learning ANU has been officially opened by the Australian National University Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian P. Schmidt AC and Goodstart’s chief executive officer Julia Davison.
The purpose-built centre offers high quality early education and care for families of ANU staff and students as well as the local community.
Goodstart’s chief executive officer Julia Davison said the centre, which caters for up to 112 children, was a state-of-the-art facility.
“We have worked hard to design a space that’s sustainable and uses natural elements in keeping with the beautiful landscaped environment of ANU,” she said.
“Being a part of the campus is a powerful symbol of the important role early education plays in helping children build a solid foundation for their schooling, higher education and their lives.”
“As a not-for-profit children are the focus of everything we do and our teachers and educators all over Australia work hard every day to ensure that children attending our centres get the best possible start if life,” Ms Davison said.
Centre director Aaron Lane said the centre had been designed in keeping with the local environment.
“We are fortunate to be situated on such amazing premises here at ANU. Our rooms are light and airy with extensive glass panelling to provide a wonderful aspect of the outdoors and ANU’s sporting fields.
“My vision is to provide an early learning service that caters to the ‘whole child’ where all aspects of the individual are celebrated and supported.”
